Who am I? Why am I here? What do I do with my life? What am I really looking for? Eternal questions we hope to answer and than to mimic the surprise. We want to discover the meaning of existence and the purpose of life, just like The Argonauts have found The Golden Fleece, but without great efforts. We are satisfied with ready-made solutions, after an indirect, incidental search. Rhetorical crutches without the anxiety of introspection. Anything that could keep us free from alienation and automatism. After all, we invest significance in our own meaning. We put there everything we have accumulated since birth, the imprint of parents, of neighbors, of the community. We are, of course, interconnected, related, influenced. We borrow, without realizing, ideals and idols, we live, without feeling, surrogate lives. "What do you want to do when you get older?" has its jaded mirror in "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?". We argue that we need some time to ourselves, that we need to find ourselves, that we need space, but we postpone and give up, because we have isolated ourselves from others and are distressed and comfortably numb in our routine. We pretend that we do not recognize ourselves, because the escape is an expensively maintained illusion and the release is a conclusion we have not reached! However, we know what it is like to be in someone else's skin or to read someone else's thoughts. Know thyself, but through others!
